Functional Requirements - Examples Needed 

As an aspiring BA, I have been researching the internet for practical examples of a requirement that has been translated into a functional requirement. Unfortunately, my internet queries yield theory, which is great, however, I am seeking examples. Below I have created a fictitious requirement and I would like to understand how to convert this into a technical requirement.

 

“The user shall be able to search either all of the initial set of databases or select a subset from it”

 

How would this be written to enable developers to develop the code? Or will the developers utilize the use cases and UML diagrams?

 

Thanks

Re: Functional Requirements - Examples Needed 
“The user shall be able to search either all of the initial set of databases or select a subset from it” -- Is a functional requirement.  It's a bit fuzzy, but it a functional capability, Search.  Now, to turn it into technical requirements, you will need to understand a little bit about the way searches are done. Is it a "Contains" search?  Is it an exact match search?  When will the search be initiated, as they type or upon submission?  Is there a preferred search algorithm?  Technical requirements are the technical considerations that need to be considered when your solution teams are designing and developing your solutions.  They also include some of your "non-functional" requirements.

But then I thought the best way to do this is by actually telling “how did I achieve my own CBAP?” So, friends here is my story. I started working as Business Analyst in 2002. I have used multiple elicitation techniques (such as interviewing,...

I address my thoughts to those who are in IT management for whom the terms such as quality of project implementation development and profitability indicators of the company are important.  And it is also addressed to business analysts whose daily routine is the process of communication with Customer. A little about myself first. The last 8...

In thinking about what constitutes quality requirements it occurred to me that there are a number of additional contexts that play a role. Examples inclu...
